Joe Calzaghe believes Anthony Joshua needs to fight fellow heavyweights Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder in order to secure his legacy in boxing.
Calzaghe, a former two-weight world champion who retired undefeated, thinks boxing is suffering unless Joshua fights the winner of Fury's proposed February bout with WBC champion Wilder.
"They are the three main heavyweights and they need to get in the ring to see who is the best," Calzaghe explained.
"It should be one name, one champion."
Calzaghe added: "The thing is with boxing it took me nearly 10 years to win every belt.
"I was WBO champion for nearly seven years and I wanted to be undisputed world champion and Ring Magazine world champion and at the end that's what I did.
"As a heavyweight decision, the fans need to see that because they get paid enough money to fight each other to see who is the best.
"Joshua and Fury are both superstars, there is no doubt about that, but I'm a fighter and I wanted to be the best. It's about being the best in the division and building a legacy.
